this one is finished, except for his hanger (they're christmas ornaments). it was so much fun to go embroider for a bit. and they're quick, fun free-hand projects. this birdy was 'inspired' by chika mori's. it has my first ever sucessful french knots on it, and some very messy lazy daisy stitch.
polka-dot birdie is going to have his pale green bits unpicked, because i don't like them. he will get more dark green stars before i stitch him up.
i would like to make a sailor jerry birdie next, with anchors and stars. and i'd like to make some black or navy blue ones with gold thread.
